Knowing isn't Achievement...

Not only the Internet can haunt us with our memories but thanks to social networks nowadays we are not obliged to remember every person we meet. Much of this doesn't even need to be said in Dan Visel words when tries to associate this argument with Plato's Phaedrus. Do we still need to remember names, formulas, phone numbers? Will it be a solution to start showing skills to our kids at early ages such as Dangerous Books for Boys?

Now back to our title. S. Downes says that knowing isn't achievement...It's a continuous act of becoming! Thanks Mr. Downes. It’s the journey and the process and the questions, not the destination or the result or absolute answers.

Flickr in the Censhorship Business..!?

I was looking through my popurls and I've founded quite interesting to follow the conversation about what's ging on with Rebekka's case. It seems Flickr had removed on of her pics because her complains about that money other company is making with her very own pictures. She posted her frustration on her flickrstream and they decided is remove her image from their site. Saying: Flickr is not a venue for to you harass, abuse, impersonate, or intimidate others. If we receive a valid complaint about your conduct, we will send you a warning or
terminate your account.


I do respect what Flickr does but this kind of attitude affects the commmunity they have grown. Please, allow more days to see what happens with this matter and if you like to support this cause your blog post are very welcome.

Update: Profy has its own version. Go read it.

Mobile Banking and Why Students Don't Love to Go Online in Cell Phones

Technology is inexorably tied to progress, but when it busts into our lives and subtly tells us that we're doing something that might help "us" in our daily activities we've got think in new ways to use and spend money. Cindy Aleo-Carreira has written an article under Banking 2.0 and is in this post where she is pointing out a new service that I think will change that way the banks operate, besides PayPal, eBay, Kiva and Google itself. She is talking about Obopay or the money transfer by cell phones!

This new service has nothing to do with the research results with the use of Internet in UK youngsters. Students are typically early adopters of services such as mobile Internet, and the trial clearly demonstrates that operators should address such issues as downtime, web page layout and rich web functionality.
